Additional Social Security benefits entitled to those with disabilities
Many people are aware of the monthly stipend awarded from the Social Security Administration to qualifying disabled individuals. Aside from this monthly financial assistance, people whose Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) has been approved are also entitled to other benefits to sustain their family and lifestyle while disabled. Listed below are the benefits bundled in the SSDI:
- Individuals with disabilities are entitled to Medicare benefits two years after the onset date of their disability.
- Through “auxiliary” SSDI, the spouse, minor, or disabled child of a disabled individual may also be entitled to receive SSDI benefits.
- Up to a year of back payments are also sometimes awarded to eligible SSDI claimants.
